This is a must go place for not only the sports lover, but the bar food lovers. My brother and I had never been to a Buffalo Wild Wings before, but we enjoyed ourselves this past Friday.

When you walk in, you can tell that they aren't here to play. Very well staffed along with a lot of effort was put into the structure, decor and it seems very well established to be so newly built.

Plenty of beer on tap to choose from, so if you can't find one you like... I feel sorry for you. I personally ordered a Samuel Adams: Boston Lager. It was fantastically poured. The server was extremely professional (for a sports bar, at least) and very nice. She didn't hesitate on explaining the menu, or and questions that I had. She took our orders with a smile and deserved the tip she earned.

We ended up getting beer, and wings. In a sports bar, this is the iconic meal. We did half and half, Asian Spice, and Thai Curry. I have to say the Thai Curry wings tasted more "Indian" and less Thai (if you know the difference) but they were good. Overpowering for those with a weak palate, so I advice you not to get them if you don't love the taste of curry. The Asian Spice wings were to die for. I love spicy foods, so they weren't that spicy to me, but the flavor is killer. I really liked how the integrity of the wing didn't diminish just because it wasn't the "traditional" hot sauce.

After we finished eating we drank a little more and became merry. It was a great time and I honestly thought the food was worthy of another go. Until they serve bad wings, I'll keep going.

The only problem is their parking and location. I am not fond of either.

This a new-to-Tallahassee restaurant. It is very popular at this point, although I can't for the life of me figure out why. Parking is difficult most evenings with the lot full of college kids' cars and them on the inside vibrating to the incessant bass thumping. We were seated after a short wait and our server took our orders. That was pretty much the last contact we had with her until we flagged her down for the check. In between, I chased down other servers to get condiments. One of them said she'd bring more dressing and was never seen again. I had to get the cashier to get what was asked for. I hate the system where one server takes your order and another (or in this case, several others) bring your food. The floors were littered with used napkins and other dining detritus which was ignored by all staff except one young man who stooped to pick up a napkin that 10 others stepped over. My feeling is that this is a place for young people and staffed by youth as well. Some adult supervision is needed. Wings were Ok, but were not freshly cooked. Margaritas are $10. Give me a break.

Old location was further away, but always worth the drive. Many good times and memories at that location. We were excited to try out this location on Magnolia. Called ahead for reservations for the game and were told if we send someone ahead to be there at opening, we could get the table for 8. Upon arrival, hostess told us she would not seat us until all 8 were present, but corrected this when we protested as they began to seat 2 members of a party of 10. All was okay thereafter until the manager came over to our table and asked one individual if he was okay and told him to calm down. We were baffled as we had only had one beer at that point, and did not feel our friend was any more or less boisterous than any other fans watching the game. A second warning resulted in us choosing to leave. Our 5 smoking friends, who had a table outside, were closing out their tab to follow us and overheard the manager tell the bartender that he pressured "that guy" to leave because he was bad-mouthing a coach that the mgr liked. The bartender was shaking her head when he walked away. They lost 13 customers over the manager thinking more of his own interests than the customers'. We won't go there again until there are changes. Is corporate paying attention?

We went to BW3 as a party of four myself, the hubster, and the two kiddos. First the hostess was extremely rude and acted like we ruined her day for coming in to eat. That is not a great first impression for a guest, then we had specifically told them we would like to be seated inside, so they buzzed us and said they had a table outside. We told them again that we would like to sit inside and they had to put us back on the waiting list. So when we finally do get seated we get put at an 8 top with another party of 4! Are you kidding me? Why would you seat two separate parties together? Not only was it awkward and uncomfortable but it was extremely unprofessional and management should not be allowing this to happen. Especially when there were other 4 top tables that were available. I was so upset that I didn't even eat. The Hubster and kiddos ordered and enjoyed the food, and the only thing that saved this rating from being a one star is that they were super nice to the kids and gave them game tablets, and they even gave them hats to wear, and they really enjoyed that. I am a huge fan of BW3 and was so excited to hear they were coming back. However, if they do not get their crap together I will not be back.
